Side-bar: Sewing

While I’m putting the finishing touches on a few more knitted goods and waiting for a tear-less, teething model, I’ve decided to go a little off-topic.  So, I sew… a little.  I may eventually get ambitious and decide to add some sewn-on details to my knitted items.  Who knows, maybe I’ll just use my skills to sew a lining in a cabled purse or something. Anyways, after dealing with two broken sewing machines this last week, I’ve finished six throw pillows, a roman shade, and have made almost all of the linens in my daughter’s nursery (including the curtains).  After making all of the pillows, I think that zippers can just go kick rocks.  All in all, everything turned out, but for now I think I’ll stick to my knitting! I was so excited about making this sweet little nursery set, I’d though I’d share.

  1. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this whole nursery ensemble. Great job!
    ( Were you doing invisible zippers in your pillows?)

  2. Thank you, mommaro; I’m glad you like it! I did do the invisible zippers in the pillows. I’ll tell ya though, as a newbie to sewing, it was no easy task!! 🙂

  3. I hear you. I am not a fan of basting stitches; especially for invisible zippers. I prefer a visible zipper that is top stitched for a visual effect. I have a few good tutorials I found online.. let me know if you are interested and I’ll pass them along!
